Bow Street Studios
Ranked #4 of 11 Specialty Lodging in Raglan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2011

We stayed in the Bow Street Studios with one teenager. The location was excellent with a great restaurant across the road, and several good cafes and places to dine within easy wlking distance. The unit is well equipped with a private court yard down stairs and lovely peaceful views from the large bedroom upstairs. The young couple managing the units were warm, friendly and very helpful.

In theory this can sleep 4, a huge bedroom upstairs, and a bathroom, downstairs, there is a sofa which converts into a bed, and they will supply another mattress, small kitchenette area - really only good for breakfast type meals. It was a bit uncomfortable for my 2 teenagers - 2 big boys - but is a great location. (but ok for a couple of nights) In the town, but tucked away so you don't get too much noise etc., and you can walk to all the cafes/bars etc. Nice patio area outside as well, good for surfboards. Handy for the beaches, and my oldest went off skateboard - across the estuary to the holiday park. Good build quality, although appartments either side, no noise, and nice quality inside, and very clean, parking also. Young friendly couple run the place, very helpful. Warning - don't go to the Chinese talk away just around the corner - had to throw the meal away it was soooo disgusting. Great cafes everywhere else.
